Consideration for outdoor swimming pools construction
Outdoor pools do have their particular design considerations which you need to acknowledge.
Before moving ahead with construction progress, we discuss each and every thing with you, to keep you aware of all ins and outs.
Here we have outlined a few ones –
The proximity of your house –
Check how close your pool is from the changing room and other showering facilities. If you are planning to use your pool for the entire year, then the closeness to the house is desirable to minimize the distance from the pool back to your house in the cold. However, if the pool is located a bit far from the house, you must consider the pathway between the changing room and the pool area. Also, make your pool clean from dirt, dust, mud, animal dropping, grass-clippings and ensure these do not get carried from bather’s feet into the pool.
You must ensure the lighting for ensuring the safe use of the pool area and any pathways even in the night. While installing lightning features in your pool, we make sure that it does not only enhance the aesthetically pleasing but should also be functional enough. We ensure to undertake all of the electrical work by a suitably qualified electrician while meeting the Building Regulations.
The surrounding and pathways of the pool should be accomplished with good materials, to ensure the safety of people. It also helps in preventing the excessive entrance of contamination into the pool water, and aesthetics. The ground surface should not be slippery, unnecessarily uneven and not sandy or loamy.
Many synthetic decoration covers for pool surround surfaces are also available with us.
Poolside Buildings –
Most of the clients, generally, who install a pool with some distance of their house, opt to erect an adjacent building. If any of our clients have any such requirement, we ensure to specify their needs at first stage clearly and guide them size and design accordingly. However, it generally does not require any planning permission, in a few instances, it may require. Especially for those cases where the construction is considered to be permanent, or services (electricity, water, drainage) need connecting to it. To avoid any last moment dispute, we ensure to consult with the local planning regulatories.
During our outdoor swimming pool construction process, we consider safety and security features as a must adhere to aspects. However, whilst there are not yet legal obligations governing regards to pool safety in the UK, we always advise our client with the best safety features, especially if they have kids. These few essential safety measurements help in preventing any unauthorized access to the pool at times and minimize the risks of accidental drowning.
All kinds of outdoor swimming pools need covering to secure and to remain clean of any type of dirt, leaves, and to prevent evaporation. There is a range of covering materials which you can use according to your choice, and it can vary significantly in terms of initial cost, and likewise with quality, efficiency and lifespan. If you are low with budget, you can go for bubble-which is a synthetic material akin to thick, blue-coloured, bubble-wrap. However, we generally do not advise having this one, as it eliminates evaporation and gains solar energy that increases the water temperature. Ensure that you purchase a perfect cover to protect your pool from any outside interference from anyone. It also allows you to enjoy your pool for years, and having this facility if coming to sell the house could prove extremely profitable.
